Zahel Antares Grand Reserve 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A light layer of lightly toasty oak greets the nose followed by soft notes, a warm cherry, rose petals, wintermint and a touch of antiseptic chalkiness with a real chocolate Necco wafer element. That lightly minty choco tone is the first thing you get in the mouth as well, followed by a nice depth of black fruits with a touch of black olive and chalky tannins. The backend is nice and focused, with more of the medicinal/floral aspects of the nose that lead to a firm, moderately long minerally finish with coffee cream notes on the finale. This is a rigid, complex wine with a slightly matte character that may very well improve with ageing. 89pts.
